The monument comprises the exceptionally well preserved remains of a group of unenclosed hut circles that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). It comprises not only a group of at least 10 huts, but also a series of small field plots defined by curvilinear stone walls.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. The monument has exceptionally complete remains and the apparent lack of significant disturbance suggests that it retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
